Lick the plate. Yes, I'm a monster.

I....reheat cold pizza. I know, I'm a savage!

Also, I use my fingers to eat sushi. And I sometimes eat dry instant oatmeal with cold milk, no heating at all.

I wipe corn on the cob with the butter stick, but I live alone, so no one complains.

Not my habit, but I'm a bit disappointed that childhood me didn't think of it first, to keep an extra hand free. Using a longer straw, could skewer 6 nuggets.

I second your "savage" verdict on eating cold pizza.

Sushi is actually supposed to be eaten with fingers (Google it), which some native Japanese don't even know. But sashimi must be eaten with chopsticks.

I'll see your dry instant oatmeal and raise you dry instant ramen noodles. A friend of mine used to crush them in their container, mix in a bit of the supplied seasoning, and proceed to munch them as a crunchy snack. No water used. Probably quite unhealthy, but I wonder how much worse than seasoned potato chips.

Not food, but I divide everything up into 5 bites and I chew the first in the back left side, then the back right, until all the teeth have exercised. If it is something small like a fry, I'll divide it up into 2 bites, left side and right side.

Lick the ice cream bowl completely clean.  But only ice cream bowls.

Only eat M&M's two by two, sorted by colors, alphabetically.

I sound fat.

mccormick bac'n bits and mayonnaise on buttered toast. I mean, if there's lettuce or even tomato, then those too.

Most of my like I drank nearly everything either with a spoon or, if bottled, using its cap as a tiny shot glass. Not milk, water or tea though. Those I drank from a glass like a human. Everything else was spoons or caps. I don't do that anymore because of the world's judging eyes but now I'm hankering for it.

I eat Cap'n Crunch berries last.

M&Ms are eaten according to color and count. Gotta keep things even.

I've noticed that when I eat toast or a sandwich, I'll start at the bottom right corner of the bread. Not sure why, though.

The frozen ones have healthy, green pea-ness.

I open a bag of Cheetos Puffs and leave it open for a few days till they're slightly soft and chewy.  They're best that way.  Sometimes I dip them in my copy-cat version of Nalley's now-discontinued garlic dip.
 
2020-09-10 8:45:33 AM  
I like to observe how people eat an ear of sweet corn.  You can tell a lot about a person just by knowing how they eat an ear of corn.

I free associated to Swedish meatball suppositories from there.  So it might be worth a try.

I like to put Tony's and parmesan on the corn.  When I do that around people who have never seen or done the same, they give me this weird look which quickly changes to one of revelation.  They end up doing the same.

I use my tongue to gently unroll a Ho-Ho, then fold it into a rectangular shape to eat it.

I also like to unwrap Starbursts and make little "sandwiches" consisting of four squares...one of each flavor.

In the privacy of my own home, I eat pizza with a fork.
I pick off all the toppings goodness first, THEN eat the bottom and crust.

When I was a kid I liked dunking french fries into a chocolate milkshake and eating them that way.
I college I developed the habit of dipping fries in french dressing - the orange kind.

These days I'll sometimes cut up an apple into slices and put peanut butter on them.
 
2020-09-10 10:01:13 AM  
making french fries in the oven extra crispy, and then dunking them in heinz.  instead of salting the fries, i dust the ketchup with salt.

I just had a spoonful  of peri peri sauce  for  my  breakfast

Soy sauce on popcorn.  Just a spritz, not enough to get soggy.
 
2020-09-10 10:35:32 AM  
When I make a salad as part of dinner, I eat the salad after eating the entree and side dishes. Sometimes 30 minutes after I have finished the rest of the dinner.

I actually melt butter and add soy sauce to it. Then pour the mix on the popcorn. Works like a charm

Stephen_Falken: These days I'll sometimes cut up an apple into slices and put peanut butter on them.


Wait, that's considered odd?  I've been doing that for years.  I think my mom used to give it to us as kids.  I know it was one of my go-to meals during grad school.

I suspect that there are a lot of regional differences in what people consider odd -- I remember an ex-girlfriend during undergrad acted like it was strange that I'd put pickles in sandwiches, rather than just have a pickle spear on the side.  (or maybe it was that it was bread & butter pickles)Of course, she was a sushi fan, and I couldn't bring myself to eat raw fish back then.  (after years of growing up being taught that undercooked meat and fish are bad).  Yet, I'd eat raw eggs growing up (typically as non-alcoholic egg nog) ... which is a questionable practice these days in the US.I like mayo on french fries, which is odd to Americans, but I'm a military brat and spent 3 years in elementary school in the Netherlands, where it was the norm.

Fries in milkshakes is the only way to go.

As a kid, I used to dip bread (the awesome crusty kind) in soda and eat it. Now, I dip it in salad dressing, or if it's given with dinner at an Italian restaurant, I will make a sandwich out of the pasta side/heap forkfulls onto the bread. Spaghetti sandwich.

I've also eaten cereal out of a glass - pour cereal into big glass, add milk, use spoon.
 
2020-09-10 10:53:41 AM  
My son used to eat pizzas that way - one layer at a time - peel off the pepperoni and eat it, then peel the cheese layer off and eat that, then lick the sauce off the crust, then eat the crust.

I keep some vinegar in a spray bottle and spritz my popcorn with it.

I won't judge you on your condiments.  I will judge you by your methodology.  Is your method sound?  Is the pointy end to the left, or the right?  Which end do you start at?  Are you systematic, or do you just bit any old place?  Do you proceed circularly, or laterally?

These things are all important questions.

Another vote for eating M&Ms by color + count when nobody's looking. M's are sorted by color (roughly along the color spectrum, which easier now that the Tan ones are gone) into a circle on a plate or other surface. Individual M's are consumed from least interesting color (Brown) to most interesting (Green) until the counts for each color are equal, then continue eating individual M's in color order until gone.

Pot pies are consumed in the following order: pick off toasty browned edges with fingers and eat; mash top crust into gravy, eat filling + crust; put foil mini-plate with bottom crust back in warm oven to toast some more; consume bottom crust.

No idea where these habits came from, but I've done it since childhood. No other food OCDs come to mind.

I have been known to save the flavored cereal milk in the fridge and put more cereal in it later to make double-strength cereal milk, into which I later dunk a peanut butter sandwich or a cookie.
 
2020-09-10 12:40:34 PM  
I farking hate the cream in Oreo's, so I scrape it off into the garbage and just eat the cookies.
 
2020-09-10 12:42:38 PM  
I pour kraft parmesan straight into my mouth. Not a lot, maybe a tablespoon when I'm grazing in front of the fridge.
 
2020-09-10 12:52:04 PM  
popcorn must be eaten in solitude, not just so i can eat it all, but because i have to spit out all the hulls.
i have a jar of brine from many jars of olives that i reduced to a brown salt-juice i don't know what to do with.  but that's more about an incipient hoarding problem.
Smarties.

I like to use my lower teeth to completely remove the kernels leaving a totally bare cob. Like something you could make a corn cob pipe out of. Sometimes it is necessary to snap the ear in half to get a good starting point. Judge me

I have a thing with milk. I LOVE milk. Whole milk, organic tastes better. I've been known to add powdered milk to my milk to make it milkier. Or canned milk to make it richer.

When no one is looking, I've been known to drink a glass of half and half.

When I can, I put half and half on my cereal and save the milk for later drinking.

I like to deconstruct my candy. Carefully bite a peanut M&M in the middle and pull off the chocolate shell. Eat a kit kat by layer from the top down. Bite the chocolate top and caramel layer off the twix.

I no longer have odd eating habits but I used to eat apple sauce and saltines.

My mom was a decent cook, but was busy, my dad is picky, and we were poor. So hamburger helper cheeseburger macaroni was a staple in our house. And eventually one box wasn't enough for 5 people on its own, so it got supplemented with toast, usually with peanut butter. Even now as an adult, every now and then, especially on a cold rainy day, dinner is hamburger helper and a piece of toast with butter and peanut butter. The wife and kids are OK with all of it, just no peanut butter on the toast for them; they think that's strange.

That reminds me, "stale" (de-carbonated) pop is THE best kind of pop. I won't go out of my way to de-carbonate my pop, but I will be happier when it is.

I have to laugh when anybody refuses to drink soda because it has gone "stale" (de-carbonated), as if it's no longer fresh or safe enough to consume. Adding CO2 to pop in the first place was a (strange) man-made idea, from back when people used to treat carbonated beverages as a health fad --- they even started by selling "healthy" pop "elixirs" at the local pharmacy!!

Yet a lot of people have fully bought into the imaginary idea that de-carbonated soda is unfit to drink? Weird. And especially weird considering how many other sweet uncarbonated drinks the same people will consume without a second thought, because those were never marketed as a carbonated drink to begin with.

Also, why are slurpees consisting of pop (which isnt carbonated) a thing, if lack of carbonation is so important? I rest my case. (And no, I don't care that the bubbles are supposed to keep the temperature down. This is 2020, we all have refrigeration. I will grant, however, that if it's carbonated I'm forced to drink iin those empty calories slower than otherwise).

If I headed a soda corporation, I'd introduce an Uncarbonated Cola. I'd market it with various ads of beautiful people in very public situations drinking the mainstream carbonated soda, but embarrassingly burping uncontrollably. That won't happen if you drink Chibi Cola!

Younger me used to do that with KitKats too. Maybe it was because they were a special treat, I needed to savour every little bit. They're smaller now, or I'm bigger, or both, so it's harder to do and I don't have the patience.

On a separate note, when I was a kid:
Salted orange slices
Salted cucumber slices.
Salted bread slices. Just salt on the bread, nothing else.

If I combined Coach McKirk's milk habit and with this salt habit, we could place bets on whether I'd have a stroke or heart attack first.

I do the cucumber thing too. Usually with a generous amount of vinegar too. And watermelon and cantaloupe ALWAYS get salted. (No vinegar on those though)

Oh and I would like to buy your cola.

Carbonation is the only thing that hummingbird food has going for it. Given a choice between flat soda and any other sort of sugary drink, flat soda loses
